Hi I was wondering what happens to a car accelerating in a vacuum?
Newtons 1st Law of motion: A Body continues at uniform speed or in a state of rest, unless acted upon by an external force
The Attempt at a Solution
Outside a vacuum, cars will attain a constant speed due to air resistance eventually equalling the traction force. So, will Newtons 1st law negate in a vacuum? Since their is no air resistance, will a car built to 120mph exceed that speed? Just my mind meandering. Tell me what you think.
